Welcome to the forums. We have a section in the forums dedicated to GIB hands. Here, North has a marginal invite. Some would do it, some wouldn't. GIB tends to invite very soundly and judged that hand wasn't an invite. Notice here you have a 17 count with a fit and a ruffing value, and 4S could still easily be down on a club ruff, and that is assuming you get the spades right.

If you think this is a sign of craziness by GIB then I say you haven't seen anything yet! Posted Image

marginal 4S I think. Plus GIBBO normally passes 8 hcp hands unless has 5431 shape i.e. the 4 is a major and 5 is a minor.
I say marginal since 3 club losers, find sQ, and 1 heart loser. even if find sq i see 5 spade tricks, 3D and 1H.
fraught with peril.

Your hand is too strong for a 1 NT opening- it is really 18 HCP. Open 1 NT at your peril.

K&R evaluator http://www.jeff-gold...cgi-bin/knr.cgi
K&R (A832 AJ Q842 AQ9) = 16.35
These are soft values 1N is fine.
You may want to upgrade to a 2N rebid as many people do purposely overbid NT hands with Gib but that is up to you.
